    Anyone 14 or older who profanely curses, damns or swears by the name of God, Jesus Christ or the Holy Ghost, shall be fined one to three dollars for each offense, with a maximum fine of ten dollars per day.

    It is illegal for a man to be sexually aroused in public.

    If any person has a puppet show, wire dancing or tumbling act in the state of Indiana and receives money for it, they will be fined $3 under the Act to Prevent Certain Immoral Practices. (my BIL has a biblical puppet show that does church fairs. Hrmmm)

    Baths may not be taken between the months of October and March.
